It seems my server is IPMI supported..

Here is my results after starting ipmi daemon

---
ipmi message handler version 39.1
IPMI System Interface driver.
ipmi_si: Trying SMBIOS-specified kcs state machine at i/o address
0xca2, slave address 0x20, irq 0
ipmi: Found new BMC (man_id: 0x000157,  prod_id: 0x0029, dev_id: 0x20)
 IPMI kcs interface initialized
ipmi device interface

--

Does this mean that I can use this IPMI fencing to fence the cluseter
nodes? Does this provide functionality smiliar to as using apc or hp
power switchs?

Thanks
Paras.
